Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
Myindianplace.com and the South Asian Task force at Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) commit to increasing awareness about the need for marrow donors. Sign up with myindianplace.com using the referral code “A3M” and Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches will receive a donation from myindianplace.com.
Myindianplace.com was created to harness the popularity of social networking and develop an influential portal for information, communication, entertainment and business where global Indians can stay connected, interact with friends – old and new, share their thoughts and stay current on topics affecting Indian and Indians through out the world.
The diverse multicultural environments that we live in today often mask the problems within our own communities. One of Myindianplace.com’s primary goals is to bring those problems to the forefront and educate our members, their families and friends on how they can help the Indian community overcome them.
What is desired, to say it simply, is more South Asian marrow donors. Every day many patients from all over the world are diagnosed with blood- related diseases like leukemia. Their only hope of survival is blood stem cells / bone marrow from a matching donor. Patients will most likely find compatible marrow from someone of the same ethnicity. However, South Asian donors (Indians, Pakistanis, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshis) comprise only of a small percentage of the National Marrow Donor Registry, approximately 1% of the six million.
Myindianplace.com will work with A3M to promote marrow donor drives, assist with fund raising activities and promote A3M’s mission to improve the health and welfare of all people by providing education, assistance, and facilitating prompt access to potential marrow and blood cell donors.
Myindianplace.com will also make a financial donation for every new member who registers at Myindianplace.com with the referral code “A3M”.
Myindianplace.com was launched on April 5, 2006 and offers members free unlimited email, photo sharing, chat rooms, blogs, romance connections and more. With members from all over the world, Myindianplace.com is positioned to be influential force in the Indian community. Please visit http://www.myindianplace.com to learn more about us.
